  • 250 g plain flour (2 cups)
  • 150 g caster sugar (¾ cup)
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, cored and chopped small
  • 55 g raisins (approx. ⅓ cup)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • 75 ml sunflower oil (⅓ cup)
  • 150-200 ml apple juice/water/non-dairy milk (⅔-1 cup)
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Line a cupcake tin with paper or silicon liners.
  • Mix all the ingredients except the vinegar, to give a stiff batter. Add the vinegar and mix well. The mixture should drop easily from the spoon so if necessary add a little more juice/water/non-dairy milk to achieve the right consistency.
  • Spoon the mixture into the cupcake liners so they are around 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes at 180°C (350°F) until risen, golden, and a toothpick inserted into the centre of a cake comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire racks before serving.


When freshly baked these have a delectable crisp crust. However this gradually softens, so if you like your cupcakes crispy, eat them quickly!
